Naming Rights

I hear Subiaco Oval is to be renamed Patterson Oval because the stockbroking firm has bought the ‘naming rights’. Incredibly, even team names are for sale these days – the ‘Retravision Warriors’. It’s like a satirical science fiction dystopia become real. It is a terrible thing that everything is for sale. I don’t follow sport, but it’s a mindset that leaks into everything.
